In humans, the spirits are the heart of life. They found being, enlight awareness and guide behavior. This lecture studies the meaning and place of the spirits in Chinese Medicine and examines how they are expressed in each of the zang organ: Shen, Hun, Po, Yi (intent), Zhi (will). Through the analysis of the Chinese characters and the study of medical and non-medical texts from the Chinese tradition, we see the salient features of each of them, their relationships and their hierarchy. This will allow the practitioner to understand better the importance of the spirits in good health as well as in pathology. This lecture explores these issues from their presentation in philosophical and medical texts, mainly the Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor.
